Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum

Dear friends and visitors,

After assessing the actions being taken at the county, state and federal levels to contain the covid-19 virus, and given the intimate nature of our tours and the safety of our staff and visitors, we have decided to close our doors to the public until further notice. We have set the initial closure period at three weeks, during which time we will assess whether to further extend the closure. We are grateful to our staff and volunteers who work so hard to make visitors welcome, and will use this time to attend to projects and repairs so that we may better serve the public when we reopen. Please check our website and facebook page for updates.

Thank you and stay safe and healthy,

Doug Herman

Welcome to Grove Farm

Grove Farm Museum

Sugar cane was the chief agricultural industry on Kauai for over 150 years. Providing one of the last authentic experiences of Kauai’s sugar cane heritage, Grove Farm continues today in its arrangement and operation as it did as a developing center of a 19th century Hawaii sugar plantation. Acquired in 1864 by George N. Wilcox, the son of missionary teachers, Grove Farm is a beautifully preserved one hundred acre homestead in the center of Lihue that includes the original plantation main house, owner’s cottage, guest cottage, old office, as well as other resident and plantation workers’ housing camp. The ongoing active household and farm with its animals, gardens, banana patches and pastures, maintain the same cleaning and agricultural schedules and practices that were established in the 1870’s.
